Heidi was recently announced as XOYO's resident for the fourth quarter of 2016, where she will present three months of her Jackathon parties every Friday in October, November and December. Hand picked by Heidi herself, each guest has been selected for a different reason but one thing apparently runs throughout the billing... their ability to make Heidi dance her ass off. To open the residency Heidi has invited the Polish-born, Detroit raised Magda to join her at the helm of XOYO. Boss of the Items & Things label, Magda likes to mix the off-kilter and the uncommon and continues to be popular. Prosumer steps up alongside injecting his fever for Chicago's Jack flavour into the night.
Friday 14 October offers up an XOYO debut from The Black Madonna. Music director to Chicago's Smart Bar, an important club right now, she is possibly one of the most sought after on today's techno and disco circuit. The month continues in a similar way with a DJ set from Berlin's Modeselektor on Friday 21 October.
Kerri Chandler steps up alongside Heidi on the last Friday of October for a night of deep house. His penchant not only for playing music out to a crowd but for the technology and instruments used to produce it has made Chandler a probably pioneering force of dance music for years.
In November, acid house veterans Luke Vibert and DJ Pierre join Heidi for an all out session of 303 goodness; with Gerd Janson and Lauer also bringing their Tuff City Kids project to the November bill.
December sees the Chicago’s Derrick Carter as well as a deep and dirty Detroit inspired session from Mike Servito and for the finale on Friday 16 December, Heidi will be celebrating her birthday with two back to back parties...
For the day session Heidi is joined by Richie Hawtin and for the night session, she is joined by Maya Jane Coles and Miss Kitten.
Heidi: "I’m beyond excited to bring my Jackathon parties to London for 11 whole weeks. Where I've been able to have the freedom to book DJs that have all moved me in some way before i started out in this biz and beyond. Every one of them has a different vibe from the next which gives it the diversity that I always try to achieve with my parties. Being able to do it in the city I live in is an added bonus. So everyone get ready to dance harder then you ever have before. Faces down.....asses up. Let's do this and sweat out our weekly demons."
